Financial Assistance For needy Singaporean Students

The Ministry of Education provides financial assistance to help needy Singaporean families reduce their burden in meeting essential school expenses and to ensure that no child will be denied an education due to financial reasons.


The Eligibility Criteria for MOE FAS is as follows:

1. The family’s gross household income (GHI) does not exceed $2,750 per month; or

2. The family’s per capita income (PCI) does not exceed $690 per month.

The PCI is introduced as a parallel assessment criterion to enable students from larger families to benefit.  For families with GHI which exceeds $2,750, the PCI will be computed based on the GHI divided by the number of household members.  Household members include the student, his/her parents, unmarried siblings and grandparents, and other dependents living in the same household.
